Command structure

  • Psion
    • Attendant — Psion units that send out a wave of Stasis energy and inflict slow on targets caught in the wave's path.
    • Weaver — Psion units that send out a wave of Strand energy to pull its target towards it.
  • Grim — A highly mobile flying enemy that slows and suppresses a Guardian’s abilities if they get too close.
  • Husk — An acrobatic melee bruiser that sends a deployable geist enemy toward you unless you hit their weak spot with a final blow.
  • Subjugator — Units that support their allies with Pyramid drones similar to the Stormcaller's Arc Soul, and casts a variety of Stasis or Strand attacks with their spears.
    • Harbinger – Strand-wielding Subjugators.
    • Omen — Stasis-wielding Subjugators.
  • Tormentor — Brute-like units that can cast Void attacks with their scythes, and grabs their target to perform the Dark Harvest move.



  • The Dread are the first faction to have flying units with wings (Grim), and to have units that use Strand abilities (Weavers and Harbingers).
